some kind of debt limit deal. however, there is zero possibility that senators harry reid and mish mcconnell will achieve anything significant fblgt what we are watching here is something between a meltdown and pathetic. the meltdown would be a default. but what's pathetic is simple. for years, and we were just discussing it on the first segment on a bipartisan basis, this city has failed to deal with the big problems facing america, and the world is noticing. i found it chilling today that china's government-owned news agency is now pointing to our continuing crisis and basically saying, the u.s. fiscal failure warrants a de-americanized world. now, other countries are saying similar things. i think we should take that as a serious warning that in fact we need to get or how in order in order to remain the leading countries in world and we have to stop the self-inflicted wounds. what they are really saying is don't shut down the government over defunding your health care plan. don't threaten default because you're not getting what president. these are things that shouldn't be a hostag

of washington to a halt. majority leader harry reid spoke with minority leader mitch mcconnell this afternoon and he called the conversation, quote, productive. so far, no word on my real movement toward a compromise to reopen our government and raise the debt ceiling. senators on both sides of the aisle giving bleak assessments about how talks are progressing. >> i think we're in a status quo. i do think we will see our way through this, but the last 24 hours have not been good. >> this leadership must lead. basically, we're in a crisis mode right now. we should not be here. there's no way it's acceptable for this government to be shut down. this is self-inflicted pain on millions of people. it's unnecessary. >> that was on "fox news sunday" today. meantime, a white house official is telling fox news that president obama was briefed by a senior staff on the effects of the government shutdown and that looming debt ceiling deadline. steve is live in washington with more on that. steve, good evening to you. are we any closer to a compromise tonight? >> jamie, it's hard to tell. likely nothing i

reid and mitch mcconnell are the last best hope. can they succeed so far where everybody else hasn't. >> all of us are talking about spending, which is where we should have been in the first place. and i do sense tremendous amounts of unity within senate republicans. >> so wall street does not seem to be sharing that optimism. stocks opened sharply lower this morning after a weekend that went nowhere in washington. >> the whole financial world is looking at us right now and we can governor ourselves. we've just got to put our country first. we came here for a purpose. >> so for now the government is still closed and the next crisis is coming and the financial world is moving from caution, concern, now to serious worry. here's a result of this one combined mess. it covers, look at this, the "new yorker" saying congress is the haunted house. speaking of ghosts of the past, look who revealed herself in washington this weekend, sarah palin was at senator ted cruise's side at a rally at the world war ii memorial. >> how do you tell you're losing in american politics? sarah palin is stan

today, senate majority leader, harry reid warned, credit agencies were eyeing another possible downgrade. >> the debt is here. the deadline is looming. rating agencies are talking about downgrading us as early as tonight. again -- >> that is, i think, the curveball that was thrown to boehner and the republicans. that took them to the very point -- holy smokes, this might be the real deal. so there was capitulation on a number of different measures. and, of course, the backdrop is public opinion, is really damaging the republican party. but there was such a brouhaha over the weekend about veterans. i had an interesting phone call to my radio show today, a veteran, 57 years old, said, this is the consequences of a default. >> hey, ed. i'm a navy veteran. and no coward. but i am truly frightened to the bone right now. the republican recession of 2008 cost me my 401(k). i've worked all my life. done the right things. put money away. the only asset i have left is my house. and that's paid for. but this -- we go into default, i lose $100,000 in value on my house. that day. interest rates for m
